‘Saved by Angels’ author to speak

Bruce Van Natta, founder and president of Sweet Bread Ministries in Rudolph, Wis., will speak at the 10 a.m. Sunday service at Faith in Jesus Church in Wailuku.

In 2006, Van Natta was crushed underneath a semitrailer and was near death when he had an “out of body” experience, according to sweetbreadministries.com. He wrote the book “Saved By Angels,” which has garnered international attention. He has been on Sid Roth’s “It’s Supernatural” TV and radio shows, the Trinity Broadcasting Network and the “It’s a New Day” TV show, among other media.

Faith in Jesus Church is located at 432 Waiehu Beach Road.
